France Ligue 2 – Bourg-en-Bresse Preview (27/1/17)

Bourg-en-Bresse preview

  • Under the radar, Bourg have now gone nine games unbeaten. They are playing some really solid football right now and kept three consecutive clean sheets.
  • Bourg are in a comfortable midtable position right now and no team has drawn more than them this season (10 out of 2).
  • Squad condition is good with only leading scorer Lakdar Boussaha ruled out. He hasn’t featured for the last three games so they are used to life without him at least.

Ajaccio preview

  • The Corsican outfit have started 2017 with back to back wins and are playing quite well. They even put up a good fight against Monaco in the Coupe de France.
  • The squad is in perfect health apart from fullback Anthony Lippini who’s injured. The temperamental defender has been suspended all of 2017 though so it’s not really a factor.
  • Ajaccio won away at Troyes last time out but they are usually a terrible away team. Their stats for the season read 1-4-5 and it’s normal for them to struggle on the road.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • How can Bourg-en-Bresse be underdogs here? Somehow, they are 2.09 on a DNB handicap which is just plain wrong! What have Ajaccio done to deserve favouritism here?
  • Bourg are unbeaten in nine games and becoming really hard to beat. At these odds, I simply have to have a piece of them.
  • I don’t actually think Ajaccio will play that badly here. In an ideal world, I didn’t want to take them on. But they have such little success away from home I have no hesitation at this price.
  • Overall, I expect a close game of football. I can’t see many goals being scored. It’ll be a tight contest and hopefully Bourg-en-Bresse come out on top. I’m not surprised the goal line has creeped up to the 2.0 mark.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet 1 unit: Bourg-en-Bresse DNB @ 2.09 (minimum odds acceptable 1.85)
